2003 Bodegas Montecillo Rioja Gran Reserva
Color: A cherry-garnet color, deep, covered, clean and brilliant. Bouquet: Complex and elegant aromas of ripe fruit, dominated by scents typical of the tempranillo grape, but with balsamic tones and touches of oak. Taste: Full-bodied, rich, spicy, intense, flavorful, concentrated, very complex, and extraordinarily lively. Warm and powerful, with notes of pepper and cloves. Thanks to its excellent structure and great tannic strength, it has a very long and persistent finish.
